Room In Cute House Near The Beach

House - Private room · Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico
Monique And Danny

Playa del Carmen is a fun, bustling city. The center has tasty restaurants, great nightlife, interesting people watching and the jaw-dropping turquoise Caribbean Sea. While everything is walking distance, it's nice to take a breath from the bustle of the center and come home to a relaxing atmosphere.

The Space

Welcome to your home away from home! Our cute 3-bedroom house is in a gated community- home to dogs (we have a well-mannered, sweet, rescued Dalmatian) and kids playing in the street and a funky mix of ex-pats and locals. There's a great shaded little park and football pitch for kids. Centrally located, we're within steps of all the action. 30th Avenue is a block away and where you'll find several supermarkets and Mexican shops, giving you the local experience. Head 3 blocks in the opposite direction and you're on the best part of the famed 5th Avenue; walk 1 more block and you're in the sea! 5th Avenue is known for its great shopping, range of restaurants and the nightlife on 12th Street. We're up on 38th- where the locals hang out. You'll get a quieter 5th Avenue experience with some of the best restaurants right in this area too. The beach at the end of 38th is also quieter but a 5-minute walk on the beach will land you at some great beach clubs. Playa center is small and walkable (buses and taxis are easily accessible within a short walk)- you can be anywhere in 10 minutes so join us in the quiet side of town.

Your private bathroom and bedroom with full size bed are fully equipped with linens, towels, fans, and hot water. Staying for a few days? There is ample closet space for hanging and storing items. Our shaded patio and garden area is perfect for lounging but the living room is equally comfortable with a large sofa and cable TV. Wifi is included.

Interaction with Guests

We've been living in Playa del Carmen and surrounding area for over 6 years. We've worked here as marine biologists and would be happy to give you the scoop on the best dive spots, cenotes to check out, and where to snorkel to spot turtles. We've also traveled a lot within the Yucatan Peninsula. We love this area and look forward to helping you find your way around town and make sight-seeing recommendations.

  • Monique and Danny are really good couple, very friendly and gave us a lot of valuable advice on trip! Their house is very clean and comfortable. I would strongly recommend future guests to live in their house!

  • We had a wonderful time in Playa del Carmen! Monique and Danny went above and beyond to answer our questions, give us suggestions, and make us feel at home. What you read in their listing is straightforward. There are no surprises here. You have a private bedroom and bathroom off of their family room. You are sharing this lovely home with this sweet family.

  • Monique and Danny's home is just like them - lovely, welcoming and very charming! The location is perfect with the beach just a short 4-block walk, and the busy 30th Avenue a block away; plus with such helpful hosts you'll never be short of places to visit or restaurants to try out. The room is exactly as it looks in the pictures, bright and clean with enough storage space and cute personal touches like the bowl of candy and the restaurant vouchers :) The bathroom was also clean and they even provided beach towels - much appreciated!
    We would definitely recommend their home for a stay at Playa del Carmen, especially if you're not there just for the touristy stuff and are keen to explore - they have so much experience and information that they are happy to share. Our trip was so much fun thanks to their advice!
    Can't wait to hang out with them in New York!

  • Monique and Danny's home is a perfect place from which to explore Playa and around. The location couldn't be better - 5 mins walk to the beach and 5th Avenue but in a quiet residential block with no traffic noise. We slept amazingly well. The bedroom and bathroom are kept spotlessly clean. Danny and Monique are perfect hosts, friendly and with all the inside tips and information that you need to make your stay great- so much better than a hotel! Don't hesitate in booking your stay here!!

  • Monique and Danny were wonderful! My friend and I came for BPM and they were both very welcoming and great communicators. We asked a lot of questions by email and in person and they were very thorough with their answers, giving great recommendations for restaurants and tips for our trip. Their daughter is adorable and their dog Gopa welcomes you home every time.
    Location-wise, couldn't ask for anything was a short walk to 5th and the beach, but away from all the noise at the festival!

I´m an American, Danny is Spanish. As marine biologists, we've had some amazing opportunities to live, work, and travel in various countries over the past 8 years. We like meeting new people, learning about new cultures, and adventures. We're passionate about conservation, SCUBA diving, and can often be found running a race to raise money for a good cause. We're new parents but with the easiest, most happy baby ever, we're having nothing but fun exploring the world through her eyes. We're looking forward to meeting you!
